On Tuesday, May 28 at 6:30 PM, the Sir Knights of Raper Commandery will present an unedited, commercial-free screening of Last Stand of the Templars. This is a documentary produced by Arcadia Entertainment of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Levant Preceptory, the group of Sir Knights from Indiana who confer the Order of the Temple in period Templar costumes, was featured in the documentary.
The production company spent two days filming in Indiana Freemasons' Hall and the Scottish Rite Cathedral. The documentary ran nationwide in Canada and on the National Geographic Channel in the US. Levant Preceptory was edited out of the National Geographic Channel broadcast.
The documentary is beautifully photographed and was shot in various locations in Israel, Europe, and elsewhere. The reenactments are very realistic. It provides a very balanced history of the Knight Templars. It also captures an amazing discovery by a team of archeologists working at a dig in Israel.
The screening will take place in the Raper Commandery No. 1 asylum on the seventh floor of Indiana Freemasons' Hall. This event is free and open to anyone who would like to join us. Pizza and soft drinks will be served. Please let James Dillman know via Facebook, e-mail, or telephone if you plan to join us.
